Sand material is quite simple. It is not visible in the scene, because it is covered by grass and plants.

Raw render without post-production.

 

Click on image to enlarge nr_PS_STACK_974.jpg

Photoshop stack. Except subtle color balancing and vignetting there were not many changes. We put desaturated version of the scene on the second layer and mixed is  in linear dodge mode, 23% opacity. Then we added Vray Lighting and Vray reflection (screen, 50%). We used two color balance layers. The lower is only for the background (more yellow, to better match the model), the second color balance layer is very subtle yellow tint for all scene elements.
